Up-and-coming Florida artist Tyla Yaweh sat down with Justin Credible to talk about his music, working with Post Malone and more.
The Orlando rapper talked about how crazy his life was living out there and wanted to get away from it to pursue music, which lead to him moving to Los Angeles. Among Wiz Khalifa, Kid Cudi and Mac Miller he also adds that he listened to a lot of old school rock music which largely inspired him to become a rapper.
Being an artist on the rise comes with its own struggles and shares how the owners of Rolling Loud used to put him on all of their shows and helped launch his career. Through his relationship with them is how he built his relationship with Dre London and Post Malone before they signed him. “Post already remembered me from all the shows and it was all organic… Post is so supportive of everything and hands on with all of my work.” He goes on to share some things he has learned from Posty like the value of show production and how important it is.
Tyla also shares how he was homeless for a little time while living in Los Angeles, a few tips on how to come up from the bottom and advice for people trying to get in the music industry.
